Being a Devon Rex, he is a little lacking in the fur department. Poor little guy gets so cold during winter. He basically doesn’t get out from under my blanket for the whole season!
I didn’t think he would be too happy about his new snazzy sweater, but after getting used to it, he is now the happiest warmest kitten in the world! As an added bonus, he gets super placid and cuddly when he wears it, which is always fun for me as he can usually be a big hyperactive! Everybody wins!
I split the bunch into two pots. My plan is to have one outside and one inside so I can alternate them when he eats it all and give the grass a chance to grow back. Have any of you tried cat grass or any of the cat related plants? What about catnip? Does it make your kitties go hyper? I’d love to get Loki some, but I shudder to think of him even MORE crazy than he already is!
I’ve always had lots of pets throughout my childhood, so when I moved out of home and into a rented house that didn’t allow pets, I really missed having some furry critters to come home too (housemates don’t count). So I devised a brilliant plan to get a pet. A hairless cat, I reasoned, would be a great selling point for low impact pets. I won my debate with the landlord to let me have a cat. It went something like “Can we have a cat?” “A cat?…. Sure. Just make sure you get the carpets cleaned before you move out”. Yeah. It was an epic argument, that’s for sure.
So, trust me, I chose the most expensive breed and had to drive 3 hours out of the city to get my cat. But that’s another story for another time.
I love love LOVE Loki. He is the most adorable, psycho, brilliant, stupid, hyperactive, stubborn and affectionate cat I have ever had. Sometimes all at the same time.
Today was cold. REALLY Cold. I managed to escape relatively unscathed as I was in my warm office all day but the poor boyfriend and kitten were at home all day and our house is notorious for keeping the cold IN! To make matters worse for Loki, boyfriend had washed the bed sheets today so the little kitten had nowhere to cocoon himself all day to stay warm.
This is how I found my room when I got home:
Okay, well that’s probably not true, but he definitely loves my boyfriend more than me. Its infuriating! I love that stupid pest of a cat so much, not to mention the INSANE amount of money I spent on him (because I just had to have a devon rex) and the damn cat decides that he actually prefers the person who until we got Loki, didn’t even like cats! If we are sitting on the couch in the evenings, Loki will climb over me (usually ensuring that he steps all over my laptop on his way) to get to my boyfriend and curl himself up on him in the cutest way possible. Regardless of if there is actually space for him. Its sickening.
I’ll admit, my outrage is fueled more by pangs of jealously than actual ill feelings towards those two getting along. I secretly find it adorable.
Anyway, this said, Something has started happening every time I sit down… I’ll sit down for ‘just a minute’ to check my email or bank balance or something that I intend to only take 2 minutes before continuing on with whatever I am actually trying to achieve, and this happens:
Right now I was going to go and sort out the spare room, maybe tidy up a bit? Apparently not. How am I supposed to contend with cuteness of this magnitude? I try to move him and he makes squeaky little sad noises and curls himself further into a ball!
